Check out what makes these all-inclusive resorts stand out for family trips.
Favorite All-Inclusive Resorts for Family Vacations
Hard Rock Riviera Maya, Mexico
Hard Rock Riviera Maya is the benchmark for hospitality and all-inclusive resorts for family vacations.
The resort includes world-class dining, 24-hour room service, a kids club, numerous pools and a waterslide, tennis courts, a climbing wall, a waterpark, complimentary Wi-Fi and international phone calls, and all rooms with a private balcony or terrace.
The Kids Club offers tons of activities, games, crafts, and music for kids of all ages. Parents can relax knowing their little rock stars are in good hands.
Lesley said, “If parents want to join their kids in making memories, Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya’s water park, Rockaway Bay, is the place to be. That’s where we spent most of our days because it made everyone in our family happy.”
At the waterpark, there are nine slides of different sizes for children and teenagers, eight slides of different sizes for children, and six high-speed slides for teenagers and adults. There is a poolside snack bar and plenty of lounge chairs to relax. The best part of Rockaway Bay is that access to the water park is included during your stay.
Beaches Turks & Caicos
Beaches Turks & Caicos is an ultimate all-inclusive vacation for families.
With a 45,000 square-foot waterpark, five villages, a 12-mile beach, 21 restaurants and two food trucks, 15 bars, day and night entertainment, and kids camp with certified nannies, it’s a vacation paradise regardless of your tastes and travel style.
Lesley said, “It’s the Kids Club at Beaches Turks & Caicos that really puts this resort on the top of my list. They offer certified nannies for babies as young as newborns to teens up to 17 years of age. They have tailor-made programs for every age group. Kids are always supervised and the programs are all-inclusive.”
There is so much to enjoy at Beaches Turks & Caicos that you may need multiple trips to experience as much as possible.
Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic
Casa de Campo Resort in Dominican Republic is 7000 acres of activities, experiences, and luxury. “From horseback riding to boat tours, Casa de Campo activities read like a bucket list rather than resort options,” said Lesley. Every day at Casa de Campo is filled with new adventures and luxurious experiences.
Their all-inclusive package includes all meals, drinks at the included restaurants, bars, and lounges, unlimited horseback riding, tennis, and non-motorized water sports.
Guests can choose from hotel rooms, suites, or luxury villas.
There’s a polo club, a 370-berth marina for the yacht, a 5,000-seat amphitheater, a tennis center, and a 245-acre shooting club.
Golf is a specialty and they are home to the famous Teeth of the Dog course.
Professional nanny and babysitting services are also offered at Casa de Campo, so parents can spend a relaxing day together, enjoy an extended dinner, or even attend a special event, all worry-free.
Kinderhotel Oberjoch, Germany
Lesley described Kinderhotel Oberjoch as “one of the most toddler-friendly, all-inclusive property that I’ve visited. It’s a family-friendly Paradise that truly understands the needs of families with younger children.”
Kinderhotel offers kids club for children as young as infants to age 16 years old. It provides age-appropriate childcare and many exciting opportunities based on the different age groups of children.
Their all-inclusive gourmet dining includes breakfast buffet, lunch, a cake, ice cream, and snack buffet in the afternoon, and changing themed buffets in the evening.

The facilities include a swimming and sauna complex, indoor and outdoor pools, giant whirlpool, children’s pool, Germany’s longest hotel water slide, several themed saunas, and a panoramic relaxation room. Most impressively is the indoor play area with a theatre, cinema, gym, go-karting, soft play area, and year-round skating rink.
Outdoors, guests enjoy a climbing forest with 15 stations and a mini zoo with alpacas, rabbits, donkeys, ponies, ducks, and birds.
For both adults and children, there is scheduled hiking, walking, snowshoeing (in the winter), and ski and hiking areas with free ski passes in winter and mountain cable car in summer.
